ATA’s Accreditations

Accreditation is very important to our college because as the healthcare industry grows, so does the need for well-trained, credentialed employees. ABHES is recognized by the United States Secretary of Education for the accreditation of private, post secondary institutions in the United States offering predominantly allied health education programs. ATA maintains affiliation with various credentialing agencies which provide the opportunity for graduates to sit for industry recognized certifications following graduation. For example, Medical Assisting graduates can sit for the American Association of Medical Assistants “Certified Medical Assistant” exam. Graduates of the Dental Assisting program are eligible to attend the University of Louisville’s “Expanded Duties Dental Assistant” course. Medical Coding graduates will sit for the American Academy of Professional Coders, “Certified Professional Coder” exam.
